This Past Week

Sunday, November 04, 2018

5750 steps was my average for this past week. My desred step count is 10,000, acceptable is 6000 +. There were three days of intentionally working on getting steps in, but another day was a wedding, another day was house work, and intentionally doing extra stairs, working in some lunges and squats throughout the day, etc. My high was 12612 steps - yes!!, but I had a low of of only 2186 steps (red-faced admitting that). So, my week was not as consistent as I would like it to be, but it's better than it was two weeks ago!! At least now it is ever constant on my mind.

I hate the time change in the fall, but as I stepped outside this morning ( and the sun was actually shining!!!), I realized that mornings will be a bit brighter, and that may help me to get an earlier jump on my day, which will hopefully be a help in meeting my challenge.

I read a good article from yesterday's Start page, which I felt was written"just for me" - it was consoling and encouraging and motivating all at the same time. I'm going to read it each morning this week, and get its truths engrained in my head, and begin this new week with at least a better attitude. Comments from my SP girlfriends help me so much as well.

And how are you (those friends) doing? How can I encourage you as you have me??

    I think you are doing great Kathy! Getting 10,000 steps a day has been a challenge for me too! I hope to start my streak today!
